Reigning NHL champions the Los Angeles Kings along with the Stanley Cup continued celebrations in Las Vegas at Hyde Bellagio on Friday night.
After dining at Sensi at the Bellagio, the team was greeted by Hyde cocktail servers outfitted in LA Kings tanks and referee skirts, carrying giant letters spelling “K-I-N-G-S.” L.A. Kings in attendance included Jeff Carter, Brad Richardson, Trevor Lewis, Jarret Stoll, Jonathan Bernier, Alec Martinez and Drew Doughty among many others.
The team made their way into the crowded club as “Eye of the Tiger” blasted and black and white LED lights emblazoned the space with King’s colors. DJ G-Squared announced to a surprised crowd, “Ladies and gentlemen, let’s give it up for the L.A. Kings! That’s the Stanley Cup right there!,” as Hyde’s costumed servers escorted the men to a plush booth below the club’s dramatic fireplace. Settling into the booth, the group enjoyed champagne and cigars while players took turns hoisting the cup high overhead to the delight of fans. The group posed for pictures with fans and shared swigs of beer from the top of the massive Stanley Cup. Later in the night, Hyde presented the team with a replica Stanley Cup cake so large it had to be wheeled to the table. The players continued partying at Hyde into the wee hours — long after the Cup headed home for its early 1 a.m. curfew.
